    There were so many protestors all with different demands some were reasonable and others were not but they all wanted something and so they were always setting themselves up for a fall. I don't think they ever took into consideration the fact the government cannot spend all the money on social welfare. The annual budget needs to be shared amongst more than just the sectors the protestor were demanding more money be spent on so they can't have it all. There is also the fact that the government can only spend so much if it wants job growth and the economy to continue improve and avoid us ending up like Greece .. we are not in the euro so if we bankrupt the country then there will be no bailouts and everybody in the country will suffer so the government must tread carefully. There are other areas that are entitled to their and I am sick of hearing the whinings that neo communist Daphne Leef who was ordering Bibi to fire Trajtenberg before he even began his investigation because she didn't think he would deliver the result she wanted. Both Leef and the rest of the protest leaders should remember nobody elected them to either run the country or the Israeli public as a whole. I think most of the protestors will be content with these proposals. Sure it doesn't give everybody everything they wanted but it addresses most of the REASONABLE DEMANDS. Time for the hardliners to join the real world and accept they can have some things but they can't have it all and if Bibi adopts the recommendations of this report then he will have done a good job and delivered the goods.
